"I'm running for 1st District Supervisor because I'm a problem solver. For nearly 30 years in Sonoma Valley I've worked tirelessly and passionately on dozens of key issues to help our communities thrive and make local government more responsive. As your supervisor, I'll work to focus the Board of Supervisors on our most pressing issues -- fixing our roads, housing our workforce, improving our public safety, and growing our local economy while lessening impacts of tourism on residents. I truly believe in leading by example. That's why I've pledged to cut my pay 25%. It's simply unjustifiable for Sonoma County Supervisors to be among the highest paid in the state -- more even than Los Angeles and San Francisco." -- Gina Cuclis
Gina was featured in a recent KQED Radio science report about her work with Friends of the River in the 1980s fighting to save the Stanislaus River in Tuolumne County from a dam. "Losing a place you love is like losing a person you truly love," says Cuclis. "It's not a person but when it's a place that has touched you, changed you, you feel a deep loss."
